    Blog: NPM, Yarn and PNPM: Which Package Manager Should You Use for SharePoint Framework Projects?

    In the past, I’ve written how I prefer Yarn over NPM not just for SharePoint Framework (SPFx) projects, but also for all my Node.js based projects that leverage the NPM package registry: https://www.npmjs.org. I wrote that post in December 2016 and things have changed quite a bit since then. Last week Microsoft [released SPFx v1.5.0 & the associated Yeoman generator](/blog/sharepoint-framework-generator-updated-to-v1-5-0-inspecting-the-changes.md” >}} that added support for changing the package manager the generator ran after creating the project scaffolding.

    In last week’s SharePoint Framework & JavaScript Special Interest Group meeting, Microsoft’s Vesa Juvonen shared what’s the engineering team at Microsoft is working on and more! Updated SharePoint Framework Yeoman Generator In early April, Microsoft quietly shipped two updates to the Yeoman generator for the SharePoint Framework, @microsoft/generator-sharepoint. The latest version is v1.0.2. The updates were fairly minor… I recently blogged about what you will find in the updates and how I figured out what the updates were as they aren’t well documented: SharePoint Framework Generator Updated to v1.

    Blog: SharePoint Framework Generator Updated to v1.0.2

    Did you know the SharePoint team at Microsoft updated the Yeoman generator, @microsoft/generator-sharepoint, twice in the last month? Yeah… I didn’t either until yesterday. The final version was released on February 23, 2017, as version 1.0.0. They then slipped two more updates in early April in quick succession as versions 1.0.1 & 1.0.2. Unfortunately, Microsoft still hasn’t published the repo for the generator or made the homepage for it in the NPMJS registry of any use… just some boilerplate copy… so it’s not easy to figure out what’s changed.
